In the end of the marina is this little restaurant/bar hidden. My family thought we were in the wrong place at first. Bait house feels genuin and very personal and that everyone is welcome. We had great fish and good laughs at this place!

Don’t let the shabbiness put you off. This is really a bait shop, and oh, by the way, they also serve food. Really great food! The menu is limited but it includes enough things that nearly anyone should be able to find something they like. The feature is the “Catch of the Day” served blackened, broiled or sautéed. No deep...

Modest brew food, in an open outdoor setting on the intercostal. Get to see the boats go by. Fun casual atmosphere. Just had burgers, nothing fancy.

We went to the Bait House because of the trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed .The food and service were excellent, and we liked the funky vibe sitting on the water. As others have said ,you must try the Drunken shrimp. We did three times, always great.

Service was friendly but a bit slow. Quality of food disappointing. Good location at pier, near Pier 60 area. Limited parking, quite a lot of traffic at peak times (dinner and lunch). Atmosphere is casual, befitting the docks area. Located in a small strip mall. Overall, it has a laid-back charm and country music ambiance. Food disappointing, but maybe we... More

This restaurant was recommended by a coworker. You have to go in through an actual bait shop, but believe me you will be glad you did. As per the recommendation on Yelp I ordered the drunken shrimp and they were incredible. They serve fish caught that day too. The atmosphere is fun and the seating in on the water. For... More

We had an incredibly good meal here after a fishing charter. At first they said the wait would be 45 minutes, and luckily they were wrong and it was only about 5. The food was incredible and they had a nice beer selection too.

This shrimp had the best flavor ever! I ordered it as my meal and it was certainly enough food. I should have ordered more bread to dip in the sauce at the end! The atmosphere is SO Florida and I enjoyed hanging out with the pelicans and boaters. One server was amazing, one a bit short (but that's ok). The... More

Best fresh fish we had in Clearwater! It's a real bait shop with small outside dining out back. Prices were under $20 entrees with 2 sides, great sides! Wine/beer/drinks available! Loved this great find!
